Lactaid Extra Strength is indicated for individuals with lactose intolerance, a condition where the body produces insufficient lactase enzyme (the enzyme responsible for digesting lactose), leading to difficulties in digesting milk and other dairy products. 

Lactaid Extra Strength is a supplementary lactase enzyme. It mimics the body’s naturally occurring enzyme to facilitate lactose breakdown and enhance milk tolerance. This mechanism effectively alleviates symptoms associated with lactose intolerance, such as cramps, diarrhea, and gas.
